What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Ask I watch them what they want to work on, what is their typical "bad" shot flight. I then have them hit a few shots with a 7 iron to loosen up. At this point I watch them hit 2-3 shots and look for the most serious flaw to address first.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I trained and was certified to teach by Jimmy Ballard, one of the top 50 golf instructors in the world. It was a 6 month program-the last week was hands on training with Jimmy at his Florida location.
What types of customers have you worked with?
How can I stop slicing is the most common issue I'm asked to fix.This is no surprise given that 85+% of recreational golfers hit a slice-especially with their drivers.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Try to watch the instructor giving a lesson to determine if you'd be comfortable with his/her style.
